Many Ways To Say I LOVE YOU

"There are a million different way to say

"I love you" 

"Put your seat belt on"

Champagne and French Music

" There should be this little
Champagne truck that drives
around the neighborhood in
the evening playing French music.
And we would hear it 
and run out with our money
and stand on the pavement
waiting for it.  Like an ice cream
truck, you know, but with

In Light Of These Times

Keeping Quiet
by Pablo Neruda
Now we will count to twelve
and we will all keep still.
For once on the face of the earth,
let’s not speak in any language;
let’s stop for a second,
and not move our arms so much.
It would be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines;
we would all be together
in a sudden strangeness.
Fishermen in the cold sea
would not harm whales
and the man gathering salt
would not look at his hurt hands.
Those who prepare green wars,
wars with gas, wars with fire,
victories with no survivors,
would put on clean clothes
and walk about with their brothers
in the shade, doing nothing.
What I want should not be confused
with total inactivity.
Life is what it is about;
I want no truck with death.
If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death.
Perhaps the earth can teach us
as when everything seems dead
and later proves to be alive.
Now I’ll count up to twelve
and you keep quiet and I will go.

At the end of his talk someone from the audience asked the Dalai Lama, "Why didn't you fight back against the Chinese?" The Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, "Well, war is obsolete, you know." Then, after a few moments, his face grave, he said, "Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back ... but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you."

A Conversation Between A Father and His Son

A father and son have the most precious conversation during an interview by french media at the scene of the Bataclan attacks which took place November 13, 2015.

The translation follows

Interviewer to child: Do you understand what happened? Do you understand why the people did that?
Child: yes,
Bad guys are not very nice. And…we have to be really careful because we have to change houses.

Father: Oh no, don’t worry, we don’t need to move out.  France is our home.
Child: But there’s bad guys daddy
Father: Yes, but there’s bad guys everywhere.
Child:    They have guns, they can shoot us because they’re really really mean daddy.
Father: It’s okay,  they might have guns but we have flowers
Child: But flowers don’t do anything , they’re for, they’re for…
Father: Of course they do, look everyone is putting flowers. It’s to fight against guns.
Child: It’s to protect? And the candles too?

Father: It’s to remember the people that are gone yesterday.
Child: The flowers and the candles are here to protect us
Father: Yes
Interviewer to child: Do you feel better now?
Child: Yes, I feel better.
